Jeanniene B. Hanners passed away on Tuesday, February 6th, at home surrounded by family, flowers and love. Her cause of death was aggressive cancer that developed after a heart attack two months before.
Jean was married to Howard for 54 years. He preceded her in death in 2010. Jean was mother to Steve and John, grandmother to Angela and Eamon (Steve’s kids), JD and Jessica (John’s kids) whom she loved very much.
Jean was a Working Housewife, which meant that her job was to do the upgrading and remodeling of every house she and Howard owned in their 54 year marriage, the result was always significant increase in resale value. She was proud of that.
Jean was a steadfast volunteer at the Bargain Boutique in Winslow for thirty years as well as yearly volunteer for the Rotary Auction of Bainbridge Island for more than twenty-five years.
Jean would be very pleased if donations could be made to Seattle Children’s Hospital – as she used to say, “it’s for the kids”.
